McClain wanted to kill somebody 


Unemployed linebacker Rolando McClain walked away from the NFL prior to his 24th birthday, despite getting a second chance after a troubled career with the Oakland Raiders.

Despite being offered a chance to make the Baltimore Ravens this summer, McClain is doing without football, he said in an ESPN The Magazine profile this week, because he was filled with rage and anger.

"I felt like Aaron Hernandez, like I just wanted to kill somebody," McClain said.

Which probably gives a clue as to why McClain couldn't stop a running back to save his life.

Sad waste.  Thought we had the Urlacher or at the very least the Biekert of the NFL with this guy and we got nothing.   He'll end up like the many others bankrupt - or in prison - or both.

McClain must not have gotten the memo...football is a violent sport.  I don't have a job that I can take out my aggressions legally and not get fired.  Zero violence tolerance policy. 

Study, practice, and kick the crap out of someone on Sunday.  I wish I had that job.

I guess money can't buy you happiness.  I hope he gets help soon.  The first step to recovery is admitting to yourself that you have a problem.  Good for him.  I pray he puts those demons in the past and find joy.

Well said... I think with everything coming out regarding concussions, and the violent tendencies that some players experience as a result of these head injuries; its a good thing he quit now, because it was only going to get worse for him playing a concussion prone position.
